My friend and I went Monday to enjoy their winery tour and tasting. It was such a wonderful experience! The staff was friendly, helpful, and patient. Our guide was a sweetheart girl with long hair and she was hilarious and knowledgeable. The wines are so delicious! Im not typically a wine connoisseur so I was truly shocked that I liked so many they have to offer! My favorite is the hurricane sangria one which I think she said was their best seller. Im not surprised. Its wonderful! I see myself buying many more bottles in my future. I also really enjoyed their shop. They have funny and cute souvenirs as well as many Florida favorites including salt water taffy, coconut patties, and local honeys and Jams. I highly recommend this little gem!
Great local Florida experience. The "wine" is made from local flavors and will challenge your idea of how wine is supposed to taste. Extremely friendly service. Lots of wines to choose from at the free tasting. You also get to sample quite a few for a free tasting. The tour is about 20 minutes and fun. Only downside is the wines are on the pricier side (that is, if youre used to buying wine at your local grocery store) averaging $20+ per bottle. However, these wines are so unique that its hard to pass up buying a few bottles while youre there. Overall a great experience that I recommend. You wont be disappointed.
After my crew told me there were no wineries in Florida I set out to challenge them - this little spot was the closest so off we set. At first I thought wed been duped with the abundance of retail shopping out front but make no mistake this is a working winery! Their FREE tour was informative with up close views of the whole process, then a generous tasting - 7 varieties! Everyone in our group took bottles home. I was excited for Florida oranges being made into wine but found it tasted more like pith than juice, but the key lime is a MUST TRY.
Their tagline says it all. "Finally! Wines that taste good!" My wife and I had a wonderful time doing the tour and wine tasting. We had bought one of their wines, Hurricane Class 5, in Cocoa, FL and loved it. While in St. Pete this past weekend we stopped in. We met the owner and learned his wonderful story. All of their wines except 2 (grapes) are made with tropical fruits. Advisory if you dont like sweet wines, this might not be your thing but it is definitely worth a taste. Also bought a couple different wines that we tried.
We visited near St Pete Beach, they gave us some tiny tastings of several fruit wines. We bought THIER most popular fruit wine. $22.95 + $2 for a cork puller. Later the plastic cork would not come out. We took it back. They opened it with a real cork puller. I wanted the better one but they would not give me my $2 back. NO REFUNDS!!. WHAT A RIP!!! I didnt buy the better puller. Later my wife said the wine did not taste nearly as good as the tasting one they gave us. We will never go back ever!!! 0 stars!! Dont go!!
Florida Orange Groves and Winery allowed us to put a personal touch on our wedding day, which we loved. They helped us create a custom labels while using our invitation design for our wine we provided as a favor in our welcome bags. They also provided the cranberry champagne for our wedding toast, which was a nice Fall touch to our Tuscan themed November wedding. We absolutely love this family owned business and their attention to detail. Yum!!

If youre looking for a unique wine experience, this is it. They have many "nontraditional" wines with unique tropical flavors. When we visited the store for the first time, we were each allowed to sample four wines of our choice and two smoothies (sampling hours vary). The key lime smoothie and orange smoothies were delicious. Great Florida souvenirs to take back to Ohio. They also offer shipping and have a frequent member card available.
Absolutely, positively, 100% recommend it! Great selection of unique tropical wines! They ship, and can delay shipment if youre worried about your neighbor collecting your wine on your behalf... :-) the lady who helped us was great. All the staff was very informative. I shipped a case back to KS, but have a feeling Ill want more. (But thats just another excuse to come back to FL, right!?) :-)
My wife and I had a tour here, and it was interesting and fun. We learned about the way they make the fruit wine, we got to sample a whole range of fruit wines. We even got to take some wine with us in packaging that looked like CapriSun for adults. They have some weird wines (coffee, hot pepper, carrot) and some wines that will make you not want to leave. Go for a visit, you wont regret it.
Somehow I always forget to leave a review for this place, even though Ive been here a handful of times. Stop in for the tour and the tasting. The little wine pouches are pretty handy for trips to the beach, concerts, etc., but the normal bottles are what I usually get. They have really good mixes, too, for more of a slurry alcoholic treat. Great for summers in Florida!
This winery was awesome...you walk in and it just puts a smile on your face!! The tour is awesome, you watch a small video and then they take you back and show you how they make the wine...all the wine we tried was amazing and pleasant on the palate. The employees here were all amazing and you could tell they were all happy to be there...just fantastic!!!
Love, love , love!! Delicious wines (Cocoa Beach is so unique)! Great, friendly staff and some really cool treats and snacks in the gift shop. I love the Florida based preserves, spreads, candies and treats that you could buy from this place. The tour is very interesting and done with some cool personality. Love the wine tasting! Great place guys!
overly sweet wines for my taste, but a fun tour. They certainly make the effort to enjoy their wine making and their wine slushies are delicious. We got a bottle and a glass besides the tasting with our tour, and learned a bit of the process in the process. Good times. I would recommend this to anyone in the area with an afternoon to spend.
I love their wine! It is an enjoyable experience to visit their shop on So. Pasadena Ave.- you can sample the wines & choose the wines you like best. I really like the new sangria wine they have mastered. The sangria bottle label is actually a copy of one of St. Petes Artists murals that is displayed downtown!
We have been here several times!! We have done the wine tasting, the tour and browsed the gift shop and enjoyed ourselves each and every time. The wines are amazing :) The staff always pleasant and welcoming. If you think wine isnt for you.. this place WILL change ur mind.
Fantastic time there with my girlfriend. The staff really is enthusiastic and love what they do. Even better, in addition to all the great wine related items for sale, the wines were incredible! Definitely will fly back down just to go back to the winery!!!!
We had a lot of fun on our tour and enjoyed tasting such unique wines. Our favorite is the Key Limen - it even comes in cute little pouches that you can bring on the beach. Highly recommend if you are in the St Pete area!
